“Italy and Rome are ready! It’s great news that the government has given the all-clear for Rome to host matches at Euro 2020, and we’ll immediately be informing UEFA.” This is what Gabriele Gravina had to say after the Undersecretary for Sport, Valentina Vezzali, sent an official correspondence that confirmed that a spectator capacity of at least 25% will be allowed for the four matches scheduled to take place in the capital from 11 June onwards.
The FIGC President continued: “The message being sent to the country is one of great trust and extraordinary vision. Italy is showing itself to be courageous, the same Italy that is fighting the pandemic and simultaneously working to get back on its feet safely by following a clear and well-defined programme and calendar.
“I’d like to thank President Draghi and his government, the Minister of Health Speranza and the City of Rome, with whom our relationship is synergistic. Above all, I’d like to pass on my gratitude to Undersecretary Vezzali, who immediately showed her full support and, in just a few days, showed great qualities and determination to bring about this hugely important development.”
